Focus On Home Security For Your Family

Many homeowners are unsure of what is necessary in home security. It can be easy to over do it as well as not have enough security measures in place. Learning the middle ground will help you secure your homestead effectively. 

Use the tips below and create a home security plan that will work for you. 

Choose a deadbolt lock over a spring-latch lock. The spring-latch lock is much easier for burglars that are experienced in "loiding." Loiding refers to the method where a plastic card like a credit card is slipped against the latch tongue in order to depress it, which will unlock your door. 



The deadbolt will prevent an attack like this. Deadbolts are vulnerable only when there is plenty of space in between your door and your door frame for intruders to use hacksaws or power tools. If you are going to be away from your home for an extended period of time, give people the illusion that someone is there. 


Leave a TV, radio or light on, so burglars will skip over your home when they are on the hunt for a house to break into. 


Make sure that everyone in your family is familiar with the emergency numbers in your phone. Also, have each of these programmed so that it only takes one touch of a button to dial them. This will allow everyone in your house to be of quick service if something goes wrong. 


Make sure that your windows are thick and secure to reduce the chance of a break in. 

If you want to have extra protection, install a system that reads when a window is broken, signifying an intrusion. Try to upgrade your windows every 3 years as it serves as a vital part of your home's security system. 


Effectively securing your home will make a big difference in the way you feel when at home and when leaving it empty. You now have the information that you need to make it happen. The above tips are just a starting point for you, so take them and get to work on your home security plan today.
